ABB/Atlantic recording group Little Brother has announced that they will join ABB/Capitol Records group Dilated Peoples on their 2006 MTV Jams tour. Both groups will also be joined by ABB labelmates, Defari. The itinerary -- which sees the North Carolina hip-hop trio making stops across North America -- follows the group's critically acclaimed 2005 Atlantic debut, "THE MINSTREL SHOW."

The tour kicks off tonight, February 22, in Los Angeles at the House of Blues, makes two stops in New York City at S.O.B.'s on March 15 and 16, and wraps up in Chicago at Hothouse on April 5.

"Lovin' It," the first single from "THE MINSTREL SHOW," premiered on MTV's "Advanced Warning" in August, was part of Spankin' New Music's "Discover and Download," and was the #11 most played video on MTV2. The group performed on mtvU's Woodies awards show in November. "Lovin' It" also made a major impact at radio, peaking at #1 on the Rap Attack chart and #2 on the CMJ Hip-Hop chart.

"THE MINSTREL SHOW" received top critical praise: USA Today gave the album four out of four stars, Scratch Magazine a 10 out of 10 rating, XXL Magazine an "XL" rating, and The Source an astounding four and a half out of five mics.

Since officially coming together as a trio back in 2001, Little Brother has been hailed as among hip-hop's most provocative and ingenious groups. They struck an instant chord within the rap community, garnering praise from the likes of Pete Rock and the Roots, as well as catching the ears of Jay-Z, who recruited 9th Wonder to craft tracks for both himself and Destiny's Child. 9th Wonder has gone on to produce a wide array of artists, including Mary J. Blige, Memphis Bleek, Jean Grae, Masta Ace, and Buckshot, among others.
